If you're looking for a course with generous fairways, interesting holes and terrific conditioning, then come to Reynolds and enjoy any of the courses here. The Oconee Course, however, is exceptional. Designed by Rees Jones, the course offers great views of Lake Oconee with a magnificent set of par 3s as well as good risk-reward holes. Arguably, it's the best layout at the resort, holes 1 through 18.

To most people, the Oconee is the second-best course at Reynolds Plantation behind Great Waters. I'm guessing my three-star rating for conditioning would have been higher if I hadn't played the course in February one week after an ice storm AND an earthquake.<br/> The movement of the land and feel of the course reminds me of Treetops in northern Michigan. Both are beautiful places.<br/> The final two holes bring Lake Oconee into play, the 17th on the right side and the 18th along the left. They're the highlights of the day.<br/> The food in the Linger Longer Steakhouse in the clubhouse is worth sampling after the round.

Reynolds Plantation is one of those destinations for a true golfer. The whole community itself has everything a die hard golfer could want, golf, golf and more golf... Oh yeah and a TMAG Kingdom fitting location for the equipment/fitting lovers out there located at the Oconee range.

The Oconee course itself is connected to the Ritz Carlton resort. You experience true southern hospitality and charm the moment you step on the property. The resort is an easy 5 stars. Located on Lake Oconee the hotel as well as the course offers spectacular lake vistas throughout.

It is a Rees Jones design, where he has routed along the Lake Oconee shoreline on many holes. Utilizing the lake as well as creeks and ponds he has offered up some great risk/reward opportunities throughout your round. Elevation changes, mounding and bunkers are not only appealing to the eye but makes you think as you go around all 18 holes.

It is a par 72 and can get to just over 7,000 yards. The greens are bermuda grass and it has received many accolades including making the best resort courses and top American courses lists.

The course you may have seen on TV as it hosts the Chic-fil-a Bowl Challenge. A fun event for coaches and former athletes from SEC and ACC schools. In watching that you can see the average amateur can get around and enjoy the course.

This will be a place you enjoy and want to come back to.
